94 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended: "Polished, rich and impressively structured, with rose petal and raspberry notes that build toward a sleekly dynamic finish and refined tannins."
2017 vintage notes
We are loving the 2017s we're tasting, including this beauty. Poised and finessed, it is loaded with the depth and juicy deliciousness we've come to expect of this bottling. A true Willamette Valley blend of diverse sites, brought together in wonderful harmony. - Marcus
2016 vintage notes
94 points Wine Spectator: "Seamlessly complex and silky, with vivid raspberry and blueberry flavors accented by black tea and savory spice notes that dance elegantly toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2024"
Whoa nelly. A very attractive Beaux Freres Willamette Valley. Pure silkiness and layers of ripe fruit are staggeringly good for this young wine, which also has the back-end structure to age for several years. But really, once you taste the first bottle it'll be what you want to drink. - Marcus
